Fresenius Vascular Care Announces New Name to Reflect Company’s Strategic Transformation

New Brand, Same Commitment to Patients

Malvern, PA, June 20, 2017 Fresenius Vascular Care, a national network of outpatient vascular care and ambulatory surgery centers that specialize in minimally invasive techniques to treat and manage a wide range of vascular conditions, has today announced its new name, Azura Vascular Care, as part of a strategic rebranding initiative. With more than 65 centers represented by more than 40 local brands, a phased rollout of the new brand across all locations nationwide will begin soon. The decision to evolve the brand reflects the company’s transformation over the past few years.

“Our new brand will unite all of our centers, reflect the full breadth of our capabilities as healthcare providers and joint venture partners, and set the stage for continued growth of the business, which includes leading the next generation of renal-focused ambulatory surgery centers,” said Jeff Snodgrass, President of Azura Vascular Care.

Azura’s network of highly-skilled physicians and staff provide care to patients in need of dialysis access creation and maintenance, along with those seeking minimally invasive treatment for uterine fibroids, peripheral arterial disease, varicoceles, complex cases of varicose veins, and more. Their centers are consistently recognized as trusted healthcare providers in their communities, and are supported by the resources of their experienced management team and their parent company, healthcare leader Fresenius Medical Care North America.
“Our new brand was chosen to inspire everyone’s vision and reaffirm our dedication to delivering the best patient outcomes and customer experience possible,” said Susan McKeown, Vice President of Marketing. “We want our patients, network of physicians, and communities to know that we are one integrated organization, operating daily with a common purpose.”
